If you have plans on May 25, go ahead and cancel them.  The Triple Crown is coming through again, and the Baltimore stop is going to be tight.  A little birdie told me there are going to be legit-ass prizes, and there’s a pig roast to boot. What more do I need to tell you?

Check out the flyer above, and then head over to the Facebook event page to RSVP yes.

Sorry for the hiatus–Friday was Opening Day, and afterwards I headed north to the NYC area for the weekend, so I was offline for awhile.

Anyhoo, recently, the Baltimore Bridges alleycat went down. Patrick continued his reign by taking home first, Megan second and Neil (from DC) took third.

Brian O’Doherty snapped some photos of the event that are definitely worth a look, and you can check them out over at the photo gallery on Facebook.
